Episode 48 – A Wizard of Flat Earthsea

Another week, another Patreon episode! This time around we dip our toes into children’s fantasy with a discussion of Ursula K. Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea. It was both of our first times reading the novel, and we share our queerpinions on:

– Subversions of fantasy genre conflicts and racial archetypes
– Le Guin’s diction and worldbuilding styles
– Man versus Self taken to its utmost literal potential
– The intimacy of sharing a true name

You can find us and subscribe on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Podcast Addict!

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast that includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. This episode contains major spoilers for A Wizard of Earthsea, as well as discussions of war, physical disfigurement, and fantasy racism.
